It’s no secret that your makeup bag has been feeling lonely.
With a year stuck indoors and very little to show for it but a heap of online purchases and an extensive loungewear collection, it is safe to say that the world is ready for the ultimate revival. Thankfully, the temp has finally started to heat up causing people to venture outdoors and reacquaint themselves with what was once referred to as a social calendar (remember those?). And as all of us in the beauty world know, a full social calendar equals the perfect excuse for a full revamp for your fashion and makeup wardrobe.
Lucky for you, the fashion world isn’t sleeping when it comes to pushing out the latest and greatest trends, so if you are one of the many looking to break back into your makeup routine, we have you covered! Don’t let your makeup bag feel lonely anymore—rediscover your sense of beauty with makeup trends that are coming in hot for the summer:
A full face of foundation is fun, but when it comes time to ease back into makeup, a lightweight skin tint is your best bet. Warm weather months can break quite the sweat so choosing a product that lets your skin “breathe” is a flawless alternative to traditional foundation. Not to mention, the glowy barely-there makeup look is a MUST for summer trends.
Juicy, sultry and completely over the top, berry blush is our next rec for anyone looking to break back into their makeup bag. Piled high blush has been on the rise in the fashion world for the past few seasons, but this summer it is taking a very berry turn. To spice up your beauty routine, apply a cream blush in a raspberry or mauve hue to the top of the cheekbones and across the nose for a sun-kissed and lifted effect.
The revival of beauty is giving neutral eye makeup a run for it’s money this summer. With makeup on the backburner for most of the pandemic, people are ready to get out and experiment with playful, colourful shades—especially on the eyes. Pastel eyeshadow hues and bold eyeliner colours are some of the most popular picks we’ve seen, with bright blue, enchanting purple and emerald green shades being some of our personal favs.
Gloss it up and glow this summer with high-shine lips that will catch anyone’s attention. Matte lipstick has been the staple for years, but this summer makeup is all about radiance—whether on the skin or on the lips. Glossy lips can be created with a simple stroke, making them an easy go-to for anyone jumping back into beauty, plus they come in a variety of tints and tones for a kissable pout that matches any skin tone.
